Flu Vaccine Screening Starting

For Inpatient Nursing, LTAC Nurses, SNF Nurses and Quality Staff

Beginning Thursday, Sept. 3, all patients will need to be screened for the flu vaccine. The documentation can be found on the Screening Flowsheet. 

Two important things to note:

  • The AVS cannot be printed without completing the Influenza Screening.

  • As of this year, solid organ transplant (SOT) patients are included in the high dose vaccine population.

For more information and to properly note when a vaccine is given outside of HM, review the CLN069 Influenza Vaccine Screen tip sheet.
